So the hostname is empty on these inserts meaning that any JobQueue
server can pick them up and process them.  That's good.

Delete the one with a NULL hostname and re-run mythtv-setup on each
of your backends in order to create this setting again.

If the backend reoccurs after fixing the settings, then get the
"-v database" logs from the backends to see when they claim the job
by updating the hostname field in the table.  You can also run with
"-v database,jobqueue" and see verbose output from the JobQueue as it
looks for, claims, and runs jobs.
